Mike Conley set an impressive record for the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday afternoon.
In the second quarter of the team's overtime loss to the LA Clippers, Conley dished out 10 assists in 10 minutes of action, breaking a franchise record previously held by Jason Williams in 2002. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Conley also became the first player since Rajon Rondo on Dec. 27, 2017 to dish out 10-plus assists in a single quarter.
With five points himself, Conley accounted for 25 of the team's 30 points for the frame.
Here is a video of all of Conley's assists from his record-breaking second quarter:

Conley finished the game with 19 points, 11 assists and three rebounds. The Grizzlies outscored the Clippers by eight points in Conley's minutes on the floor, but they struggled on both ends when he fouled out with 2:51 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Led by Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, LA outscored Memphis 27-14 in the game's final eight minutes (overtime included).
The Grizzlies are now 12-6 on the season. That puts them in a three-way tie with the Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers for the best record in the Western Conference.
Conley has been a huge reason for the Grizzlies' success thus far. Through 18 games, the 31-year-old is averaging 20.2 points, 6.3 assists and 3.2 rebounds per contest.
Memphis has been a different team with their star point guard on the court, going from outscoring opponents by 6.0 points per 100 possessions with Conley in the lineup to being outscored by 3.6 points per 100 possessions with him on the bench.
